  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   SZ2021-0001

Post forecasts that sugar cane production in Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) will increase marginally by 1 percent to 6.1 million Metric Tons (MT) in the 2021/22 Marketing Year (MY), based on good rainfall, increased available irrigation water, normal weather conditions, growth in the area planted and consistent cane yields. Post forecasts that sugar production will increase marginally by 1 percent to 700,000 MT in the 2021/22 MY, based on an increase in sugar cane delivered to the sugar mills, better quality (sucrose content) of sugar cane, and improved sugar mill efficiencies (sugar recovery rate). Post expects that Eswatini will fully utilize its allocated United States Tariff Rate Quota in the 2021/22 MY and 2020/21 MY.
